In few people, this pain may be referred and perceived as occurring in the back of head, shoulders, arms or chest, rather than just the neck
. Other symptoms may include vertigo, nausea (dizziness) and stiffness
can be intermittent. It will be best that you consult a neurologist who would like to prescribe Pain killers, steroid and muscle relaxants. Other treatments could be cervical orthosis such as a soft cervical collar/stiffer neck brace to restrict neck movement.
